LOS ANGELES – The odds for the 2023 college football National Championship game are set and the Georgia Bulldogs have opened as the largest favorite in over 20 years with a 13.5-point spread at first opening.

Georgia Vs. TCU Spread

  • Georgia -13 -110
  • TCU +13 -110

Since 1999, no online sportsbook has ever set a spread for the National Championship game of more than 11 points. There have been only three teams since then than have been favored by double digits in the title game.

  • 2001 Florida State Seminoles (-10)
  • 2003 Miami Hurricanes (-11)
  • 2013 Alabama Crimson Tide (-10)

A double-digit spread has not been favorable for those betting the favorites with Alabama being the only winner of the three on college football betting sites.

How They’ve Faired Vs. The Spread

Yes, Georgia is heavily favored, but they have done a terrible job against the spread this season for a defending National Champion. Granted, they’ve had nine spreads set at 20+ points this year, however, they failed to cover against notable underdogs in Missouri, Kent State, Samford, and Georgia Tech leaving them with a 7-7 ATS record.

They have also been on a downward trend in their last seven games including the Playoff Semifinal against Ohio State having gone 3-4 ATS in those games. They have also put up just a 5-4 ATS record against the Big 12 in history.

On the TCU side, they’ve shredded the spread this season going 10-3-1 to lead the Big 12 and are covering the spread by 9 points on average. In the three games that they’ve been an underdog this season, they covered and won in all three games.

In history, TCU has come up big against the spread when an underdog of 10 to 15 points going 14-6 ATS all time. When going against the SEC, they are 4-3 ATS in their last seven games.
